The Venting Booth The Venting Booth

How would you react to...

a friend coming over with her kids and... bringing her crock pot to cook dinner in your house without even letting you know about her intentions?

She is not a close friend. We used to be but she got frustrated because I have other friends, too; she also got frustrated because she is very religious while I am not (at least not the way she is); and the fact that she'd never making her kids stop messing up my house drove me nuts.

She did prepare her dinner in my house. But... I've been in shock since then... Would you take your pot to cook in someone else's house? Someone that is not quite a friend? What would you say to someone that bring their carrots, peas, onion and meat to your house? :)))

Note: she cooked the meal and then went home to eat... so, she didn't do it to eat toghether. :)

Sounds like she lacks social skills. Who invites themselves over like that? What if you had plans to go out? Weird.

 She just showed up unannounced...with a crock pot?  That's quite weird.  I would have said "as long as you brought enough for the whole class...come on in!"  Then I would ask "to what do I owe her presence". 

I hope you had a nice visit with her.  Maybe it was a peace offering and she would like to rekindle the friendship.

Oh, no! She prepared the meal and then left to eat at home :). They came over at lunch time and had been here until 3:00pm. :)

She was invited: the kids were supposed to play and we were supposed to chat a little... I have never expected pots and vegetables over :)))

 Ok..well that was nice of her to surprise you guys with it.  I wouldn't try to read anything in to it or question it.  Just go with it and appreciate it...maybe surprise her with a meal or something unexpected, in the near future.  :)

In t his case, yeah...I would have asked "what the hell?!"  She wouldn't have been making her dinner...at my house.  I don't understand what she was thinking.

I got really mad when she started bringing her things inside... I was about to send her back home but... my kids had been waiting for a while to play with her kids so... I tried to calm down. I am laughing now but... I am still amazed about what ideas some people could have :)

If I can eat it too, by all means, come every day if you want.
